The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen is one of relatively few wagon models that make an attempt to be rugged or SUV-like. That means it drives every bit like a Jetta Sedan, and has easier loading and a lower cargo floor than any crossover alternative. The Sportwagen also stands out for its superb ride quality as well as nice handling and maneuverability--with a turning radius of 35.8 feet.
Volkswagen's Jetta Sportwagen models have changed very little into 2012, except for a few minor equipment and trim changes. For 2012, the Sportwagen SE and TDI models are now offered with a sunroof as a separate trim level rather than as an option, and a new top-of-the-line TDI model pairs the sunroof and navigation system. Also, sound systems in SE and TDI trims have been upgraded to include an iPod cable, satellite radio and HD Radio.
Base S and SE versions of the 2012 Jetta Sportwagen come with a 170-horsepower, 2.5L in-line 5-cylinder engine, while the TDI model comes with a 140-horsepower, 2.0L turbo-diesel 4-cylinder. The TDI engine is actually the quicker of the two engines, as it produces much more torque--236 pound-feet, as low as 1,750 rpm. This reduces the need for downshifts and brings a relaxed, yet strong driving experience. Gas mileage is also very good in the TDI--up to an EPA-rated 30 mpg city, 42 mpg highway.
